Italian senator Fernando Rossi, who is leading the “Hope” convoy of medical assistance to the Gaza Strip, has denounced the Israeli siege of Gaza and the world silence towards such a humanitarian crisis.

Addressing a joint press conference with Palestinian labor and social affairs minister Ahmed Al-Kurd in Rafah on Monday evening, Rossi said that he or she that does not refuse this siege is not a free person.

He said that the “Hope” convoy faced various difficulties over the past three weeks and especially in the past couple of days when the Egyptian authorities refused to allow it access into Gaza but finally agreed to let it enter.

For his part, Kurd welcomed the convoy and called for greater efforts to end the Israeli oppressive siege of Gaza.

“Our call on the entire world is enough to the collective punishment of this (Palestinian) people, this siege contravenes all international treaties,” the minister asserted.

He expressed disappointment because Egypt banned two thirds of the convoy members from entering Gaza and hoped that it would allow them access on Tuesday.
